For some reason I’m having trouble getting at the labels of a select field I’ve created via PHP – the field is called “pay_description” and it is a sub field of a repeater field
and has a choices array:
‘choices’ => array (
‘deposit’ => ‘Deposit’,
‘payment1’ => ‘1st Payment’,
‘payment2’ => ‘2nd Payment’,
here’s the code i’m using
$field = get_field_object('pay_description');
$value = 'payment1';
$label = $field['choices'][ $value ];
nothing is echoed
i feel like i’m doing something silly ..
Always DEBUG your code when it doesn’t do what you want:
ok thanks .. my issue was that I was trying to use “get_field_object” to access a sub field of a repeater
is it possible to directly access a sub field of a repeater with its key?
i was able to get to the field i needed without looping through all of the sub_fields like this but i’d rather use the api if there is a cleaner way:
There is a function called get_sub_field_object, however you need to use this within the has_sub_field loop
Currently, you cannot target a sub field directly by it’s key. This will be possible in v5 thanks to the new data structure!
